President Biden was blasted Thursday for what many called “outright lies” after he asserted that gas prices were $5 per gallon when he took office.
Biden appeared at the Onondaga Community College’s SRC Arena in Syracuse, New York, to praise a $100 billion commitment from Micron to build a massive semiconductor in the area. During his comments, he turned to praising his own administration for its work on infrastructure and the economy.
One of the successes he touted was falling gas prices, which he claimed have dropped to $3.39 per gallon on average. This, he alleged, was down from over $5 a gallon “when [he] took office.”
“And because of the action we’ve taken, gas prices are declining. We’re down $1.25 since the peak this summer and there been falling for the last three weeks as well, and adding up real savings for families today.
